Film show: 'Girls of the Sun', 'Yomeddine', 'Chéries-Chéris'

Peshmerga fighters take centre stage in French feature "Girls of the Sun"; film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why this compelling story fails to set the screen alight in director Eva Husson’s latest feature. Also, a road movie with a difference: "Yomeddine" won over the critics in Cannes with its unlikely friendship between a leper and a young boy. We find out how the Egyptian film manages to skirt sentimentality.


And we check out a wide spectrum of LGBT cinema at Paris's "Chéries-Chéris" film festival.
